    Free Poker Software and Online Poker Guide

    I need some guidance about the best way to monetize my site. I've tried affiliate poker sites, but they seem to suck. Now I'm trying a month with Commission Junction, and will see how it goes.
    I'm also considering EPN and Clickbank.

    I'm considering a nicer background, what do you think of these?

    My main priorities are
    * Increasing Traffic
    * Optimal Monetization
    * User experience.
    SEMrush
    So any suggestions would be appreciated :) thanks

    My hits are increasing, but monetization is not good.
    My partner thinks we should increase advert density. What do you think?

    Nice resource. I like the idea of a darker background to draw more attention to the content, the green is nice. I think you should be patient with the ad density for now and just concentrate on drawing traffic.

    Sure! Concentrate on traffic and only then in conversion. But for sure this is a nice resource!

    The site looks good.

    Do you have poker games I can feature on www.MafiaMob.com?

    I presently run expensive radio ads on Sirius Radio on the Howard Stern Channel.

    I would advertise your site for poker games featured on my site.

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Last month we had about 2500 unique hits. And by the end of this month we will have had 4000 unique hits. (its the 2nd month of the site launch)

    With our inconspicuous advertising, last month we got 2 clicks, 0 registrations with poker site advertising. This month as an experiment I changed our advertising to commission junction, and we received 10 clicks in about a week, but no conversions.
    I was thinking of loading up as much advertising as john chow has, including text link advertising, like kontera.

    Does anyone have any experience about what is achievable income on the volume of hits we're getting in a gambling related niche? and possibly suggestions on which advertising to use, density of ads etc?
